  • A fantastic museum in a brilliant setting. Very informative and a huge amount to see, from full size planes and tanks to a wide array of guns on display, medals and other assorted items. I'd recommend planning for a bare minimum of 2 hours as a visit to take it all in.
  • This is very nice place. It is a lot of models of historical vehicles in this museum. Also it is a lot of models of any kind of military things. It was very exciting time while I visited this place. I spent a couple hours for exploring this museum. This is very nice atmosphere in this place and very good personal who work there. Thank you guys for this opportunity to dive back in the history of our grandparents and how they did this victory for their grandchildren.
